Menlo Security recognized on the 2021 CRN Edge Computing 100 List

Mountain View, California—November 8, 2021 – Menlo Security, a leader in cloud security, today announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Menlo Security to its 2021 Edge Computing 100 list.

Over the last 19 months companies have had to quickly pivot and support remote and hybrid work models. Along with accelerated SaaS adoption, this redefinition of the modern workplace the Internet has become the new corporate network. As a result, companies of all sizes are re-thinking and re-architecting their applications, network access and security controls around Zero Trust principles. The right Zero Trust approach will ensure seamless access between users at the edge and the applications they are authorized to use, while all other corporate assets and applications are invisible, preventing security breaches and negative consequences such as ransomware attacks.

The second-annual CRN Edge Computing 100 list spotlights the vendors leading the way in providing channel partners with the technology needed to build next-generation, intelligent edge solutions that ultimately bring data collection and processing closer to users. The categories include Edge Hardware, Software and Services; IoT and 5G Edge Services; and Security.

Menlo Security was founded by a group of cybersecurity experts to provide companies with a reimagined, impervious approach to security built on Zero Trust principles. The company’s solutions leverage isolation as a core architectural pillar. It’s the only way to truly eliminate malware, secure work, and protect productivity—what matters most to the businesses we work with and their end users. As migration to the cloud quickens and application workloads move to SaaS, security is being rearchitected to meet a new set of challenges. Menlo Security is at the forefront of this shift—empowering organizations to adapt and map their journey to Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and beyond.

“CRN’s 2021 Edge Computing 100 list returns this year to recognize the leaders bringing the technology required for channel partners to build unique edge solutions that empower businesses to work better and smarter,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “The contributions of these innovators continue to pave the way for the IT channel to deliver bold, progressive, and trusted offerings to its customers.”

“The browser has become where work happens. The ability to do business revolves around users having complete, uninterrupted access to these cloud-based tools and platforms,” said Poornima DeBolle, co-founder and CPO of Menlo Security. “Our products have been designed from the ground up to prevent attacks rather than only detecting and mitigating attacks. Menlo Security continues to drive a channel-first market strategy. Our trusted channel partners are truly an extension of our team. We are honored that CRN has recognized us as a top 100 edge computing company.”

The 2021 Edge Computing 100 list will be featured in a special November issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.crn.com/edge100.
